Q: Do you rent kayaks?
A: Yes! We have a great selection of kayaks, try our fishing kayaks, they will change your world. Rent a kayak or rent a canoe from us.
Q: What kind of canoes do you have?
A: We have comfortable, molded-seat canoes that offer greater comfort than a standard aluminum canoe. They are also quieter and don't get hot in the sun like aluminum canoes. Finally, our canoes do not leak!
Q: How many people can you get into a canoe?
A: The canoes are rated for 800 lbs and have 3 seats. As many three people can fit in one canoe.
Q: Do you have group rates?
A: Yes. We love to help out with groups.
Q: Can I rent a canoe or kayak for the day or weekend, pick it up and bring it back?
A: Yes. You can arrange to meet us to pick-up a canoe or kayak to use for as little or as long as you would like. We've even had some customers take canoes and kayaks to the lake or beach for the week. We charge $40 the first day for canoes, $30 the first day for kayaks, and $20 for each additional day, or for the week, Sunday night through Friday night for $100.
Q: How late can we canoe or kayak?
A: It depends on the length of the day and the weather; however, our last trip of the day has to leave before 1:30pm.
Q: Do you allow pets?
A: Absolutely! On a leash. Just F.Y.I., some dogs do better on the water than others. You might want to see how your pet does around water first.
Q: Do you provide life jackets for children?
A: Yes. We have life jackets to fit from 1 year old on up.
Q: Do you have life jackets for big guys?
A: If God makes him, we have a life jacket that will fit him.
Q: What should I bring and wear?
A: Wear shoes that can get wet and muddy and won't fall off; flip-flops are typically a bad idea. Wear comfortable clothes that can get wet. Bring: water, a snack, sunscreen, bug repellent, a towel, and a change of clothes to leave in your car. Leave anything that you don't want to get lost or wet in the car or at home. You would not believe how many people lose something on the river every day.
Q: Can we fish on the trips?
A: Of course. We love fishing! The best fishing in the area is done on these rivers. One group last year even caught a fish with their bare hands. Make sure everyone over the age of 12 has a fishing license. These can be purchased at Walmart and many other locations. If you're new to fishing, or would like a little more guidance, we can provide guided fishing trips.
